"We face the greatest crisis of leadership we’ve seen in our lifetimes, and powerful voices are filling the void, sowing hate and division among us. We know America is better than this -- but it's on us to build it together. Make a contribution to our presidential campaign today. We're not taking a dime from corporate PACs, so your donation is critical to our success. —Kamala" reads the donation page.

On Wednesday night, Harris stopped by the Rachel Maddow Show.

"We still have a whole lot of problems around issues of equality and freedom and fairness, but people are prepared to fight, and I am prepared to join that fight, and, if necessary and if folks will have me, I'm prepared to help lead that fight," the 2020 presidential candidate said.
